civilizations. each of these human experiments has changed our planet. this high vantage point brings us a new and sobering view. for the first time, we behold our world as finite, limited. on the darkened face of earth, the lights of cities record the expansion of our kind. just 50 years ago, two billion people lived on earth. today our global population has reached five billion. within the next generation, it will double once more. our exponential growth now threatens the very resources that sustain life. the abandoned ruins of ancient societies hold clues to our survival. but to learn from our past, we must discard a romantic image of these earlier and more simple societies. archaeologist william sanders. a commonly held notion among the public at large and also among some of my anthropological colleagues is that non-western peoples live in harmony with nature, that they have relatively stable environmental relationships. what archaeology teaches us is that that's not true. keach: in the new world, human beings appeared for the first time more than 10,000 years before the birth of christ. o

the cycle of gaining. even if i wasn't eating as much as i used to, i wouldn't lose because i wasn't moving at all. obesit also linked to certain types of cancer. older women have a higher risk of breast cancer if they're very heavy. they have a higher risk of endometrial cancer and their obesity may be, in some way, related to colon cancer, as well, and for men, to prostate cancer. why have so many people lost the battle to achieve and maintain a healthy weight? dean hamer: some people think that it's all a matter of metabolism, that some people have a slow metabolism and that makes them fat. well it turns out that the same genes that control metabolism also control appetite-- these are genes coding for hormones and receptors that are released in response to how much a person eats and how fat their cells are, in essence. it turns out the same hormones and receptors control how hungry you are. so when people eat a big meal, the hormone is produced. the hormone tells the body, "burn off the fat and use it as fuel," and it also tells the brain, "you're full, stop eating." if a person has a pr

there are five depicted. however, they also use their own numbering system. in the case of these copper axes, they use the symbol, a flag, which stands for 20. and in this case with 5 flags they are demanding 100 copper axes. warrior uniforms and shields in the amounts of 1 each and then amounts of 20 each are demanded. this symbol, a feather, represents 400. now, if they want to modify that, for instance, we have here a colored mantle, and 400 are being demanded. but these are fingers representing one each. so they're not demanding 400 here, but in fact, 402 cotton mantles. 40 jaguar skins, 1,600 bales of raw cotton, 80 bird skins, 1 bin of corn and 1 bin of the grain chia. 8,000 containers of chocolate. the amount a province or a town was assessed in tribute depended in large part on the difficulty the aztecs had in conquering you in the first place. if you acquiesced to aztec demands immediately, your tribute assessment was typically fairly modest. if, however, the aztecs had to raise an army to go to war before you would agree to be a tributary, then the amount you paid went up. and this

granite used in this sarcophagus was also associated with the sun... black stone, the color of the fertile soil of the nile valley, carried with it associations of resurrection and rebirth, and often referred to eternal life. fully prepared and adorned, the mummies were then placed in coffins. they were made from precious metals orved gi. coffs housed the deceased and provided another vsel for their spirit. they were inscribed with images of deities-- another layer of protection to ensure safe passage into the netherworld. the mummy was now prepared for its westward journey across the nile. judging by the scenes of funeral processions in the tomb of the noble ramose, the bereaved dealt with the expression of grief much as we do today... but there was a major difference... egyptians bearing offerings-- food, wine, clothing, furniture-- joined the funeral procession. representations of these provisions weren't just pictures... egyptians believed what they depicted would come into being. i think it's important, when you look at objects from an egyptian tomb, including the decorations on the w
